So I have been toying around with the Command Squad and wanted to find some use of Straken. I muse about a close combat unit in guard, which is already the wrong path. But indulge me!
Including the Valk this is like 450-540 points. Absurd, I know. But I sure will be trying it to give a surprise to friends.
4 vets (replace lasgun with laspistol)
2-4 priests with eviscerator
mounted in Valk/Vendetta
So, on the charge we have"
21 S4 I4 attacks.
5 S7 I4 power attacks.
12 S7 I1 power attacks.
You can also reroll failed to-hit!
Should probably just take Ogryns, huh? Haha.

Yes Ogryns are ok but Grey knight terminators in a Vendetta with a priest and possibly straken nearbuy is the ultimate close combat unit in a guard army.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
Absurd? Probably. Still, that's a pretty crazy CC unit, and you managed to do it strictly from the IG codex. Nice. Your friends would probably caught offguard.
I also giggled a little at the thought of a bunch of huge 'roid induced IG and Inq CC monsters all juiced and ready to kill, and inbetween all of them, one timid and very frightened astropath.
